My gateway 506gr came with XP. I upgraded to Vista, and now to Win 7Ultimate. I can't seem to get the correct audio driver for this desktop pc on windows 7. Vista, everything was ok


There have been alot of problems with Windows 7 and older software compatabilty. I have conflicting info on what audio you system has. One says Realtek:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=4367
This site supports up to Windows Vista but, in some cases Vista will work with Win 7. You can also try here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/
Another said Intel, which you can try here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?iid=subhdr+downloads
With Intel, click on the "run Intel Driver Update", and let Intel scan your system, because they will let you know if your sound is theirs or not. What it may come down to is, if you can't find a driver, and, want Windows 7, you may have to upgrade to a sound or graphics card.
Good luck,
Dave

Is there a windows 7 driver for an e machine t2042? where can I find it if there is one?


Windows 7 always find the best drivers better than the other versions of windows. Make sure you have windows updates enabled and it will find all your drivers. This is an older machine originally designed for XP but Windows 7 will work make sure you have at least 1 gig of ram(memory). It has very common components like Intel Vga(video) and Realtek audio and Lan(network) and Windows update will find or already have the drivers. I have attached the link for you unit but emachines(gateway) does not even have Vista Drivers for it.
Thanks for using FixYa

Hi, im trying to install windows 7 ultimate onto my gateway. I bought it retail from best buy and am having problem with the install... is it factory set for me not to be able to install an operating...


If you bought a full retail version and not an upgrade, you may need to do a fresh installation of windows. You also need to make certain that your gateway model is able to upgrade to windows 7. Checking your computer's support page, there are no BIOS updates available. Your computer should be fully capable of upgrading to windows 7 from windows Vista. ALso looking at Gateway's support page for this model, there are no drivers offered for Windows 7. All drivers offered are for windows Vista. I have seen computers in the past that will not tolerate an operating system change from the system that was installed at the factory.

If you have a restore partition, you can back up your data, and do a clean install of windows after formatting your hard drive. You may also want to make recovery disks for your computer in case the Win 7 will take on your computer or you cannot get your hardware to work with Win 7 since Gateway offers no Win 7 drivers.
Good luck. Take precautions to back up data and be able to revert to your original factory settings if necessary.

I installed windows 7 on my acer 5610 and all my buttens stop working


Hi Thophilip ,

It means that you still have to download the drivers for that laptop to work with Windows 7.
Windows seven has bunch of default drivers for most of the devices available on the market but not all of them, specially the proprietary laptop buttons.
I checked for driver for windows seven but I can't find any
-the best thing is try using the vista drivers
-most vista drivers will work with windows seven
-if it does not work, use the compatibility mode

32-BIT Vista Drivers
Chipset - Intel
Audio - Realtek
Bluetooth - Broadcom
Camera - Bison
Camera - Logitech
Camera - Suyin
Card Reader - ENE
FIR - SMSC

1.your software may not be compatible with the Windows 7 and will have to be run in the compatibility mode for Windows Vista.
Check the compatibility mode for the Vista to install your "craft studio"cd it may not be compatible with Vista and can only run in XP mode or Windows 98.

here is the instruction from Microsoft to use the compatibility mode in Windows Vista:

Unable to get my new graphics card to work


Just moments ago, I downloaded the latest (v9.4) Vista 64-bit driver for my LX 6200 for my HD 4650 512MB video card. It seems to have fixed a cursor flickering problem, but didn't help with the screen saver problem. My card is made by Sapphire and I downloaded the driver from there site at: http://www1.sapphiretech.com/us/support/drivers.php

Disabling the built in HD3200 is key to successfully installing the Catalyst software.
